Windows 7: Driver_power_state_failure

12 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Ever since I got this Dell laptop, I am getting this BSOD often.

I have attached everything using the SF_Diagnostic_Tool

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me fix it forever.

Thank you so much.

Look for newer drivers or reinstall existing drivers.
Driver Reference Table

Problematic Software:
Start Menu\Programs\Comodo	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Comodo	Public
Start Menu\Programs\Comodo\COMODO Firewall	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Comodo\COMODO Firewall	Public
Comodo is known to cause BSoDs and other problems on certain systems. Suggest you to uninstall it and all its components completely. Use MSE instead (At least to test). It's free, light weight and does not cause problems like many other antivirus protections do.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
I note that you have Malware Bytes, it's a great combination with MSE.

What's connected to your USB ports?

Upgrading drivers for pre-existing device
  1. Open Driver Install - Device Manager
  2. In the Device Manager locate the device you wish to update the drivers for/look for a
  3. Right-click the device and click Properties.
  4. In the Properties window click the Driver tab.
  5. Click the Update Driver button.
  6. In the Hardware Update Wizard point Windows to the location of the updated drivers on your hard drive
Once drivers have been installed reboot.

Also go through optional updates in windows updates and install any available

You definitely need to clear up your start up items. Please do, following this tutorial:
Startup Programs - Change
Keep the ones you really need at start up including your antivirus.

Yes, don't use Comodo internet security 6.0.252829.2560 since its still a beta product.

And Hotspot Shield has some incompatibilities with 64bit OS I think

And Intel Centrino adapter must be installed without the MyWifi software. Only install the driver.
